New Toolkit Helps Medical Practices Examine the Impact of Health IT on Workflow

A new toolkit funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and prepared by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for Quality and Productivity Improvement (CQPI) will assist small and medium sized practices in workflow analysis and redesign before, during, and after health IT implementation.

The toolkit, Workflow Assessment for Health IT, includes tools to analyze workflow, examples of workflow analysis and redesign, and others’ experiences with health IT and workflow.

For more information and a copy of the toolkit go to http://healthit.ahrq.gov/workflow.

Additional documents are posted at CQPI's website here: http://cqpi.engr.wisc.edu/node/488.
